Anyone tried new HG612 firmware?


[link to this post]
 
As title, there is a new firmware out with a newer driver version for the BC chipset.

It's meant to perform a bit better.

I have tried it and got a lower sync

79999 to 79987 and no change in attainable rate.

the graph looks good for people on longer D-sides.

Hmm, all a bit scary and I don't really want to be one of the first to try it! The difficulty is knowing what the modem would have resync-ed at had I just switched it off and on again - it my case it never connects at the same speed anyway.

I tried it for a few days.

My sync speed went from 26003 kbps / 5844 kbps to 26712 kbps / 5792 kbps.

Reverting to the original unlocked firmware as a test put sync speed back down to 26007 kbps / 5701 kbps.

I'll test it again in a few days to see if DS sync speed increases again.

It seems to move DS bitloading out of the slightly weaker 'Shared/Other' tones into specific DS tones.

Maybe it's of more use for users on longer connections like mine (around 1000m).

I tried it on a 2B and 3B modem (both same anyway)

It improved my upload about .5mbit (attainable rate)

People on lines syncing at 79999/20000 I wouldn't bother This will make no odds to you.

People on longer line, could be interesting.

I can't see any mention of it but I would use it if the attenuation bug is also fixed.

Well they were all sold over 2 months ago so you didn't only just miss out!

I'm on maximum upload speed anyway but download is below max, been synced at 68014 for the last month. I might give it a try next week.

I hope someone reports back on how they perform! (Preferably in a dedicated thread).
